On your phone, go to Fixmyspeakers.com, set your phone volume to max and press the icon. It'll play a sound that will push water out of your speaker. Other than that, turn it off and leave it for about 24 hours if possible.

You could also try a hair dryer on high air/low heat for a few minutes. Just don't overheat your phone.

You absolutely do not want to use a hair dryer. That can result in forcing the water further into the phone.

I've used it on electronics before, as well as my s-pen. I understand your point however. I should add that when I get things wet, I first swing the item with the point of entry of the water facing outward, so it shakes as much water out as possible.
I've heard that a bowl of rice can be used, although I've never tried it. Keeping those little silica packets and adding them to the rice may help too.

You talking about the notification? It's just letting you know there's water in the USB c. Let is dry out and the notification should go away once enough moisture has dried out.
